Good points ?This hotel is in a great location, the buzzy centre. The choice of meals was excellent. The staff were very helpful. However, our room on the 12th floor was a disppointment. Cape Town was our last stop after a gruelling two week tour all the way from Swaziland. There were a group of us, staying for three nights and we all had two large suitcases to sort out before catching the plane back to the UK. We were readily shown alternative rooms on the same floor but they were all a similar size and with the same facilities. There was a wardrobe with 4 hangers each, the rail approx 6' plus high, no good for the little ones among us unless you stood on a chair. The wardrobe had two open 'boxes' to put things in. There were no drawers anywhere so most of our clothes ended up scattered on the floor, or remained in our cases. This hotel is just right for business people who are travelling light. Oh, and don't waste your time trying to get the TV working, it is so complicated, just ask one of the staff to show you !

Room Tip: Aim high to avoid the disco.

Dear KentOldboy,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about the hotel. Ii gives me pleasure to read that you had an enjoyable stay at the hotel. Unfortunately we have a limited capacity for luggage storage, that in most cases is sufficient. With regard to the television, we will try to simplify the procedure and give an easy explanation for it. Thank you for your valued feedback as it ensures we can improve on our services offered!

Kind regards,

Jerome van Helden

Stayed a total of three nights on 2 visits in February. The hotel rooms were clean and the staff efficient and very helpful. Ate a couple of meals in the restaurant which were tasty and well presented. The restaurant staff were extremely pleasant. The Buffet breakfast was very good with plenty of choice.
The location was very good, there was a stop for the Hop-on Hop-off bus close by and it was easy to walk to many different areas.
I would stay there again if visiting Cape Town.

My wife and I spent eight nights at the Strand Tower in February of 2012. The room was clean and comfortable and reasonably priced. It was easy to walk to the waterfront or the museums in the day and around Long Street at night. Internet service was inexpensive and reliable. Unfortunately gained 3 pounds on the breakfast buffet.

Room Tip: We had the twin beds made into a king, and it was firm and comfortable.

Great hotel - the hotel and especially the bedrooms are very clean. Staff helpful and friendly. Management there to help you at all times. Breakfast has a wide selection. several computers to check your email was an additional convenience. Would recommend this to any traveller to Cape Town
